To Be a Star Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I was seventeen
You were working for Matthew and Son
The Beatles met the Queen
And I wrote, I'm gonna get me a gun, yeah, yeah
It was like a dream in the star machine
Oh, no, is it so, is it so?

I never wanted to be a star
I never wanted to travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart

I never wanted to be la-de-da
Go to parties Avec Le Bourgeois
I only wanted to sing my song well
So I could ring a small bell in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I was on the road
Sleeping between lorry lights, oh no
Stone-drunk and cold
Heading into a bad night, yeah, yeah
Just another bean in the star machine
Hi ho, here I go, here I go

I never wanted to be a star
Buy my mum a Ferrari car
I only wanted to run my own race
So I could win a small place in your heart
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

But nature found a way
It picked me up off the dark side, yeah, yeah
Showed me another day
It made me sing, I think I see the light
Not another bean in the star machine
Oh no, this time I won't go

I never wanted to be a star
I never wanted to travel far
I only wanted a little bit of love
So I could put a little love in my heart

Songwriters
ISLAM, YUSUF
